Here's a VBA script that opens a workbook and then saves it to the desktop.  I have no idea what I did wrong.
Question 2:  does my procedure location matter? (i.e. Should this be in location 1, 2, or 3?) (See graphic below).

Option Explicit

Sub add_worksheet()

Dim TargetWorkbook As String
Dim DTAddress As Object
Dim wb As Workbook
    TargetWorkbook = "C:\summary.xlsx"
    Set wb = Workbooks.Open(TargetWorkbook)
    DTAddress = CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SpecialFolders("Desktop") & Application.PathSeparator

    wb.SaveAs (DTAddress & "summary.xlsx")

 End Sub
